Rights activist and pro-democracy campaigner, Omoyele Sowore, has regained his freedom more than three months after he was arrested by the Department of State Services in Lagos.

Sowore was arrested and charged to court by the Nigerian Government for planning a nationawide protest tagged #RevolutionNow. 

He was released on Thursday evening after the Federal High Court in Abuja ordered his release for the third time.

Sowore is expected to appear in court on Friday for the commencement of his trial.

The Nigerian Government is accusing Sowore of insulting President Muhammadu Buhari and planning to bring down his regime.
